Airbrushed Photographs of Women

There is a report today by Dr. Linda Papadopoulos, that says that children are over-exposed to sexual imagery.

One of the points it makes is that photos are often airbrushed to make the subjects closer to what is considered to be an ideal.  It says that that airbushed photos should be marked as such. I think there is a fat chance of that ever happening, as suppose they insisted on it in the UK, would it apply to imported magazines printed in the US and Europe.  If they were not allowed to be distributed here that would be censorship!

It just shows how far this report is from what can be achieved in reality.

Look at this photo of a lady dressed how she would have been in the Belle Epoque era, I found on the web from 1895.

The waist looks very much that it has been retouched. 

Plus ca change! Except then tiny waists were important and now it’s being stick thin.
